What if they had painted together?

Children’s book about Munch and Van Gogh

'Edvard is asleep. He's been painting all day, because he is an artist and always at work. Now he's lying in bed, under a thick, striped blanket. It's cold and dark outside, but inside, Edvard is dreaming about warmth and light. Edvard is dreaming… about a beautiful day.’

The above excerpt comes from the children's book A Beautiful Day written by René van Blerk, educator at the Van Gogh Museum (translated by Laura Watkinson) in cooperation with illustrator Erik Kriek.
